Rahul Mathew

Rahul Mathew is hopelessly in love with our business of creativity. He still can’t believe that we get paid to think the outrageous and create the unexpected. It’s why he believes that his primary role as Chief Creative Officer is to spread this love.

Ever since he took over the creative reins, the creative product of the DDB Mudra Group has never looked better. Shiny stuff and honours are regularly added to the once-dusty mantlepiece - Cannes, Spikes Asia, D&AD, One Show, Kyoorius, Effie’s, Warc, the inaugural D&AD Impact Prize Fund, 4 Grand Prixs in the last 3 years at Spikes Asia… the list goes on.

According to the 2021 Campaign Brief Asia ranking, DDB Mudra Group is #3 in India. While the WARC 2021 ranking is that of the #1 Effective Agency in India, as well as Asia. More recently, DDB Mudra Group became the first Indian agency to be crowned APAC Agency of the Year, at Spikes Asia ‘22.

Outside of work, he’s a slave to his Labrador son. Reads anything, including the back of packs. Watches anything that qualifies as sport. Is a big fan of Chelsea FC. Drinks too little water and too much of everything else.
